Building a Caring Economy to Speed Recovery (Part 2)

As we start to anticipate an end to the pandemic, how can we rectify the deep deficits in key services and supports, and chart a course for recovery? Part Two of the Progress Summit 2021 series delved into how to build the Caring Economy with decent work and quality services, starting with the deepest holes within our healthcare system.


Throughout the virtual program, we hosted inspiring speakers, interactive sessions and compelling conversations about how to build the Caring Economy. We talked to leaders and activists from around the world about what types of proposals are gaining the most ground and where they are already in place and working.

The event was the second chapter of the 10th Anniversary Progress Summit series.

The annual Progress Summit brings together some of the world’s most insightful policy-makers, elected officials, movement-builders and thought leaders to take on the issues of the day and chart a course to a more just and inclusive society. In the past, we have been honoured to welcome to our stage luminaries as diverse as former Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard, Gloria Steinem, Robert Reich and Van Jones.

This year’s Summit is hosted in partnership with the Foundation for European Progressive Studies (FEPS), the Friedrich Ebert Stiftung and the Roosevelt Institute. Given the constraints imposed by the pandemic, our 10th Anniversary Progress Summit will occur online and comprise three sessions spread between March and May of 2021. Our program will take a deep dive into old and new challenges and opportunities we face in this unusual time, including how to build a post-pandemic recovery with prosperity for all.
